Can I assume you had more teeth pulled?  Are the dentures immediates or hard liners?  Try using a different brand of adhesive.  I love Fixodent myself but it does contain zinc which you have to be careful you don't use too much of.  That said if you were given immediate dentures with soft liners then no they won't fit  for long.  You should have a schedule as to how often you will get a new soft liner.  Unless the next appointment is more then a week or two away I would just wait for your next soft liner.  If you have a long time to wait call your dentist and tell them you need a new soft liner because your current one is too loose.  They should work with you.  That said if you were given a permanent set then by all means call your dentist up and tell them your problem.  Dentures can cause problems if they don't fit right and never accept permanent dentures that don't fit right.  The fact they don't fit right may explain all your problems.

Yeah, dentures and all the drama can break you. Sorry. Fixodent sucks. Terrible junk. I found Dr. B Dental Solutions Adhesadent is great. For 30% off entire order use promo code DENT. I have the whole kit and love it. Hope this helps you and others reading this. Happier New Year!

Dry dentures first then let adhesive sit for 5 min talk to the dentist for a soft align for a better fit

Sorry about that  But you have been thru a trauma and an assault on
 your  body.   It is only natural that you are suffering.    It is also a loss.

Go back to your dentist and see if he can make any adjustments to 
make you feel better
Talk to people on this blog and see if any of their suggestions work
I hope you feel better soon
